Low tyre pressures or tracking out will cause stiff steering.

Could be an air lock in the system.Leave the engine running with the fluid cap off and turn the steering from lock to lock several times .

SOURCE: Stiff power steering on Pontiac 6000, 1989.

Hi Dale,

At the risk of sounding, well skip that.

The first two things to check when the steering gets stiff are the belts and the Power steering fluid level.

The belts should be checked for tension and wear.

If the fluid in the pump was allowed to get low and was recently filled, there may be air in the system.

Bleed it out like this:

  1. Start the engine
  2. Slowly turn the wheel back and forth .
  3. Bring it almost to the stops, then back the other way
  4. Repeat 4 - 5 times
  5. Check the Power Steering Fluid level - fill to the line if needed
  6. If more was added, go back to step one and repeat the procedure.
  7. Take it for a test drive
  8. Check the levels one more time
Hope you find this to be Very Helpful

Mike

SOURCE: Steering stiffness when going higher speeds

Check the steering servo. Start with the fluid level and the pump.

Is the unit an active feed back capable unit? If not then I'd look at the steering column bearings. Although the speed at which you are driving should have bearing on the bearing (pun intended).

Steering goes from easier to stiff and back to easy when going from highway speed to off ramp. This hard steering can last from 15 seconds to 1 minute, any ideas?


The hassle has to be with the power steering pump..Check to make sure that the fluid level is up to spec and there are no leaks in the hoses.. If all looks good then the pump has an intermittent condition responsible for issue. U might want to wait till it goes completely or replace it.

Fortunately when a car is in motion the absence of of the assist is no big deal/ it helps with parking and other slow maneuvering.

2002 buick regal gs hard to turn at slow speeds and makes whining noise when driving


Most likely the steering rack is failing & you hear
the power steering pump straining

Happens when you don't change the fluid every 3 years

Also the top strut bearings could be worn & causing the
stiffness also (two problems)

I believe It is NOT a tire problem or an alignment problem. It is a gear problem, somewhere in the steering system. It also not the steering box, we replaced this already. There are other gears, like the...


There's a pressure sensor in the power steering pressure line, this sends info to the PCM. Find and unplug the electrical connector to it, some times these fail and send bad info to the PCM and affect the feel to the steering. If that seems to control the symtoms, replace the sensor or leave it disconnected [ the steering will be stiff when low speed turning if left unplugged ] .
